Secure Validator Nodes

Blockdaemon brings extensive experience in complex node deployments to the market. Our public validator node -- as well as dedicated validator node deployments, if you wish -- follow Kusama's recommendation to deploy with a layer of sentry nodes. These nodes prevent against DDoS attacks, ensuring your validator node remains up and participating in network consensus. 

Best-in-Class Monitoring

Uptime is critical for validators on any staking-based protocol. Blockdaemon runs high-availability nodes and monitors all infrastructure for early signs of trouble. We monitor machine metrics including core resources, network utilization, plus protocol-specific measures to ensure uptime is not compromised. Internal alerting triggers rapid response, ensuring a 99.9% monthly SLA is maintained. 

Dedicated Staff, Direct Access

Blockdaemon is active in the Kusama community and signaled intent to validate even before the transition to proof-of-stake. We remain dedicated to providing the best performance and by updating the software on your node as it's made available. Furthermore, you have access to our team via the extensive Blockdaemon Help Center, where we can help you solve any questions you may have about staking on the Kusama network.
